Karl Rove to Palin supporters: Stop whining about my criticism of her TLC show
Hotair ^ | 11/19/2010 | Allahpundit

Posted on 11/19/2010 8:06:52 AM PST by WebFocus

But … I thought they were friends. Well, acquaintances. Sort of:

She had spent most of her time [on election day] ensconced at the Fox television studios, though she managed to squeeze in a jog in Central Park — which she promptly chronicled on Twitter: “Beautiful!” Also at the studios was her fellow Fox News contributor Karl Rove, who had recently questioned in a British newspaper whether Palin’s new reality TV series, “Sarah Palin’s Alaska,” made her appear Oval Office-worthy. The building was abuzz over what would ensue when the two would inevitably bump into each other. The moment came after Palin finished a segment with the anchor Bret Baier and saw Rove lingering stageside with Brit Hume, a Fox colleague, holding a well-marked copy of “Alaska for Dummies” — a prop clearly intended to mollify Palin. She laughed, used her phone’s camera to take a picture of Rove with the book, traded brief hellos and then left the studio without mentioning Rove’s earlier comment.

The clip’s unclear, actually. At first it sounds like he’s telling her to man up and stop whining, but then, perhaps thinking better of that, he shifts his aim to her famously devoted supporters. Not the first time this week that a prominent Republican’s accused her of being thin-skinned, either. In the same NYT piece quoted above, Mary Matalin’s quoted as saying, “She gives as good as she gets. But I don’t know her well enough to know if she’s developed the thick skin you need to be endlessly resilient, the way Reagan could take things for decades and let them roll off his back.”

In fact, this isn’t even the first time this week that a Fox News commentator has thrown a few jabs at her vis-a-vis her show. I guess the 2012 primary season really, truly is upon us. Exit question: On a RINO scale of one to 10, with one being Jim DeMint and 10 being Lisa Murkowski, where does this segment leave Rove? (Exit answer: 12.)

Karl Rove would be wise to learn Reagan’s 11th commandment.

Rove: Already, a RINO SOB.

Rove... you’re washed up. Nobody wants you, nobody wants to listen to you. You’re a talking head full of nothing but garbage RINO politics.

Everyone thought this man was the paragon of political one-ups-manship, but he’s really just another “moderate” lapdog.

*spit*

“Go Mitt. Go Mitt. Go Mitt.”


“Rove is pushing Romney so aggressively some folks are beginning to wonder what's going on,” grumbled one veteran Republican strategist.”


“Rove has made no secret of his support for Romney as McCain’s VP. ”

Rove and Peggy Noonan are competing for the title of most irrelevant Beltway Vichy Republican. So far, Rove is winning, hands down.

I saw this last night and it sounded to me like Rove was whining about being called out for his comments. I think Rove should man up herself and stop acting like a misogynistic homo drama queen.

Karl Rove did more damage to the conservative movement and to the GOP brand amongst conservatives than any other living person. As far as I’m concerned he’s personna non grata and I switch the channel whenever he comes on.

Yeah, I saw him on Hannity. Rove is the one who keeps this “I’m sorry if she took offense, but - hey - I’m an analyst” shtick going. He’s becoming more and more smarmy about it.

If anyone is whining, it’s Rove. And he’s sounding more and more like a 5 year old who isn’t getting his way.

I don’t know whether Sarah will win if she chooses to run in 2012, but I am 100% certain that Romney cannot win. Mitt’s negatives with patriotic Americans too strong. Mitt at the head of the ticket would drive down conservative voter turnout enough to hurt the entire country, which is a VERY bad thing. If we don’t take America back in the 2012 election, America is probably never coming back as a free country. At least not peacefully.

Rove is right

Where is the thicker skin around here?

If FR follow this path of political correctness (make no mistake... that is what Freepers are for in this instance) no one should say anything about anyone

Wait a minute. You speak of freedom of speech, and you use it, yet you would like to deny us our own freedom of speech? No one is saying Rove can’t say what he did—what we’re saying is, we don’t like it, and at least in my case, what he’s said leads me to question his judgment.

Rove is just jealous because Sarah looks better in women’s clothes than he does. He’s the kind of cross-dressing fag that can’t abide a good-looking woman getting the attention that he feels s/he her/himself deserves.

Rich to Karl: Personalities aside, I’m not really seeing how a candidate doing a travelogue about his or her state and an “up-close-and-personal” documentary about his or her family, in and of itself, is automatically unpresidential.

When Sarah did her, “Bless his heart” comment about Rove a while ago, it was game over.

Rove is a jerk. Never in his life would it ever have occurred to him to criticize a RINO. In fact, he was responsible for putting at least a dozen of them into the Senate.

He even backed Lincoln Chaffee. And Crist.

And he was the motive force who put Arnold in charge of California. How’d that work out? Total disaster. He not only finished the work that Gray Davis started, but he made it evident even to the California voters that a Republican could be counted on to do a lousy job.

Rove has always done everything he could to twist the Republican party to the left.

The sad thing is that FNC has “Pumpkin Head” on just about every night. The only people with larger heads than Karl Rove either march in the Macy’s Thanksgiving Parade or are Minor League Baseball mascots.

Rove did come out and say that Lisa Murkowski was “sad and sorry,” and could not win a write-in campaign. But, as far as I know, he didn’t say it when she started gaining. And he didn’t say it early, either, until he was pushed.

I did that in 2006. FNC is not conservative. They’re just not as overtly liberal as the rest of the lamestream media so they get a lot of crap.
